Description: This course is primarily for a relatively small group of more advanced students to do field studies in terrestrial ecology, field trips, and readings from primary literature. We will use the Hampshire College forests and fields, the canopy walkway, farm center, and off-campus sites as our study areas. We'll be outside as much as possible early on, and visit several habitats and locations of interest. We'll also carry out several field problems or small sampling projects, focusing on studies of vegetation, birds, insects and other invertebrates, and salamanders, among others, also depending upon the weather, results of our work as they develop, and the interests of the participants in the course. Prerequisite: some previous ecology or science.
